We saw great reviews and went for ourselves. We ordered the tilapia and enchiladas and both were amazing. The menu has a lot of variety and prices are really good.

Had a nice dinner here last night. The bbq chicken and the lemon fish was super tasty. Loved their homemade sauce. Went great on the roasted potatoes. Was easy to order even with our little Spanish. Nice atmosphere and decor.

This was our go-to for lunches during our week in Banos. The vegetarian lunches were a favorite with all four kids, and three of them are carnivores! Priced right, fresh, fast and family friendly. The menus offer other options of course, but the almuerzos are...More
